Here’s more information from the Washington Sustainable Food and Farming Network:

The 2013 legislative session started this week. WSFFN, in collaboration with the Good Food Coalition, is working to restore funds for WSDA’s Small Farms and Farm to School Programs which were cut in 2011.

We are planning a Good Food & Farming Lobby Day Monday Feb 4th in Olympia and would love to have you join us for all or part of the day. Click here to register and we will send you details.

We will be delivering a legislative flyer to our state representatives and urging them to restore funds for these valuable programs that help our hardworking farmers and our kids.  If your farm or organization is not listed and you want to endorse, please endorse online. It takes about 2 minutes and is very easy.

Thanks so much for your help! Hope to see you in Olympia February 4th!
Can’t make it February 4th? This issue is also on the agenda for Hunger Action Day, February 22nd.
